CEO Jeff Weiner will talk about LinkedIn’s $26 billion sale to Microsoft and more at November’s Code Enterprise conference

With a new owner, will the company become more than just a job network?

Samuel Leshnick

After LinkedIn sold itself to Microsoft earlier this year for $26 billion, CEO Jeff Weiner was asked if he’d stay at the company post acquisition and for how long.

Unlike other leaders of companies Microsoft has bought, almost all of whom have left (see Skype, Yammer, Nokia, aQuantive), Weiner definitively said that he’s “staying put.”

So far, so good in the five months since joining forces with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella! So we invited the media-focused CEO onstage to talk about that and more at our upcoming Code Enterprise conference on Nov. 14 and 15. Along with the state of LinkedIn post acquisition, it will also be interesting to hear from him about whether the independence that Weiner so valued is still intact and how Microsoft is (or isn’t) integrating the company’s services.

Code Enterprise is all about how work is changing — from what kind of jobs we do, how we get those jobs, where we work and how we get to work — so we’re excited to talk to the head of the world’s biggest job network about his semi-new job.

Weiner will be joining an already hefty lineup of speakers including Taskrabbit CEO Stacy Brown-Philpot; California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom; Google cloud leader Diane Greene; hotshot collaboration company Slack’s April Underwood and Noah Weiss; Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson; and designer Yves Behar and architect Ryan Mullenix.

And that’s not all. We’ll have even more speakers and events to announce in the coming weeks. In the meantime, you can register for the conference, which will take place in San Francisco, here.
